There are a few things you may want to check...there should be a 20 amp fuse in your fuse box that controls the electronic fan that is behind the radiator (the fuse map is on the fuse block cover to tell you what each happens to be, as well as a fuse puller to get the little guys out).
Under normal operating conditions, the fan only kicks on every once in a while in accordance with a pre-set program of temperature ranges... but if the fuse is blown, it wont turn on at all.
I have an 05 Suzuki Reno that had the same problem and the fuse replace fixed it, and the fuse never went again. One thing to check for are breaks or skinned pieces of wire around that region (follow the wire with vehicle OFF from the fan to the little plug). Also make sure that snow is not gumming up the works when its parked out side and you should be fine.
If it is indeed the fuse that is blown, and it happens again very quickly after replacing, you may have a short in the DC motor that is propelling the fan, or a short in the wiring between the plug and the fan.
If the fuse IS NOT blown, then it could be a relay or the control unit that is not functioning properly. The relay is pretty inexpensive...but the radiot fan control unit is not...the module books out at about $240, which is a shame cuz its just a little guy that screws into your radiator.
Entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity! (Try the cheap things first)
I hope this was helpful,

Your Rpm needs to be high in this little 4 banger makes the most torque at 4000rpm and horse power peeks out around 5600rpm. I own a 95 side kick gotta gear down espicialy if you've put bigger tires on

SOURCE: Lack of power
If your problems started from the day that you had the new throttle body installed, yes this may be your problem. I'll give you some checks that you may perform to check if it was installed properly.
1.Make sure that all the hoses were replaced and all hose clamps were tightened up properly, if it leaks air, your air flow sensor wont be able to read the correct air flow into the egine which leads to poor performance.
2. If it is second hand throttle body that was installed, move your throttle shaft where the accelerator cable is attached to, up and down. If there is a lot of movement you will have to replace it or get it re-bushed.
3.On the side of the throttle body is a black unit attached, this is your throttle position sensor. With the egine not running, move the throttle on the throttle body, you should hear a click sound (a micro switch inside this unit opens a circuit), if you do not hear a click sound it has been set up incorrectly. Loosen up the two bolts holding this unit to the throttle body and turn this unit in the opposite direction of the throttle to rev up the engine if it was running, then turn it in the same direction as if you would throttle the engine but do it slowly untill you can hear a click sound. As soon as it clicks hold it and tighten the lock bolts. Now test it and make sure as soon as you would accelerate it clicks, job done for this one.
Generally look for vacuum hoses that might not be connected or secured properly and or electrical connections that might not be in place.

Did they say why the computer is covered on warranty, but the coils aren't? Would they have been covered had they found the problem the first time you took it there for problem? Tell them to do computer only, and then you try it and see how it's running. Don't hesitate to call the owner relations number in your owners manual and discuss the situation with them as well. Let me know how it goes.
